Friends of the Library author luncheon with Bob Ford.
Lieutenant Bob Ford’s spellbinding account of his time as a helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War weaves a tale of courage, love, loss, and hope. Through vivid first-hand accounts, Black Cat 2-1 tells the story of a war that silenced the voices of 2,197 helicopter pilots and 2,717 crew members who were killed in battle. Climb into the cockpit beside Ford in one of the Huey helicopters he flew, and stand next to the men who valiantly fought in that faraway place through the pages of Black Cat 2-1. This gripping memoir will keep you on the edge of your seat while laughing out loud between missions with each turn of the page.
